they don't have that option, but i guess one could find a way to do that.

 

CD cases is a fun idea, too :oh:

These are amazing! The heart is my favorite but I love the sentiment in "The Magic is in the Telling".

The store window one is so cute with the guy staring. :roflmao:

 

The color shading in that heart is literally making my mouth water. :silly2:

it's mostly done with 'paper quilling' strips... i never found out how they fixed those, as what i saw (until now!) didn't appeal. a bit 'twee'... these, however, break the mould. unhelpfully, the quilling stuff just says 'glue the paper'... :bahhumbug: and you have to not get confused with porcupine quill stuff. paper filigree might get better results from Mr Google....but they still don't talk about the glue... :gaah:

 

ah. this one is quite helpful. pva seems to be most used, put on with a toothpick.

I used to do it a little, until Sue said it was ugly and put me off. You just use a quilling tool, which is a little plastic stick with a slot to put the paper through when you are beginning to wind it, and then PVA glue applied to the edge of the paper with a toothpick, as mad says. I used to mainly make freestanding creatures, like frogs and dragons and bugs.

Do you have any pix of the ones you did?
